Arrest warrants have been issued in Ho Chi Minh City against a Vietnamese woman and two foreigners for allegedly hacking the bank account of a Japanese nonprofit and stealing more than US$13,000.
According the city police, Pham Thi Sa, 30, Nigerian national Oge Chukwu Ekwedge James, 30, and Filipina Maria Cecilia Lopez, 33, stole VND260 million ($12,500) and $950 from a bank account belonging to Bridge Asia Japan between April 18 and May 9 last year.
Most of the money was transferred to Sa's account in ANZ Bank, and the rest to Lopez's account.
Sa then withdrew nearly VND200 million and gave it to the Nigerian, the police said without revealing further details about the trio's scheme.
They said the warrants were issued because the suspects did not respond to their summons.
